    " A sweet story and prose that reads like poetry. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Travis | 11/9/2011

    " The novel was overly descriptive of the Irish setting. I felt the pacing was a bit slow and that the plot would have been improved by more insights into the lives of Minnie's children. Minnie as a character was quite static and feeding off of her, the novel was trapped in a lengthy doldrum. "

    " Very wordy, very Irish, story eventually draws you in can't help but think about how the handicapped author wrote it. "

    " Great book about Ireland. Great portrait of the relentless fight of a woman to accomplish her destiny no matter what as her life inexorably follows its course. I really liked the descriptions and the detailed settings of each moment in the book. "

    " This was one of the more difficult books that I've read. The writing style, though commendable, was not to my liking. I really disliked most of the characters, except for the main one, and found the situations more annoying than anything. I would not recommend this to anyone for a "light" read. "

    " This is a book to read for language, the way Nolan take ordinary nouns and creates exciting verbs. He's a language outlaw, and it saddens me that he has died. He was only 43. "
